Karen Coyle provides an introduction to the Dublin Core Abstract Model (DCAM). It is something that deserves to be better uderstood and studied. I've heard that it, along with FRBR, is a basis for RDA. FRBR over the past 10 or so years has become somewhat known and taught in classes. I haven't seen the same dissemination of ideas from DCAM. I have considered giving a presentation on it, I believe it is important, but it is sooooo dry. Maybe Karen can begin to make it more widely known.
